Pastor's Desk: Holy Trinity Sunday

Posted 25th May 2013 in Pastor's Desk

Happy Feast Day!

Holy TrinityWelcome everyone to our Masses on this, the Feast Day of the parish, Holy Trinity Sunday. This feast day is always a very special day for us as a parish as we celebrate the Most Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Spirit, to whose care our community of faith is entrusted. What we know of the Holy Trinity is revealed to us by Jesus in his preaching and teaching. He tells us very clearly that the Father, Son and Spirit are one. They are three persons, one God. What is more, the Holy Trinity wishes to share their divine life with each of us through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. By way of our Baptism and Confirmation we have been admitted into the internal life of the Trinity as an individual but called to celebrate our life of faith in community. This is no surprise given that the Holy Trinity is a community itself of three persons open to others.

First Communions

We congratulate the pupils of Scoil Bhríde JNS who received First Holy Communion last Sunday and also the pupils of St. Francis of Assisi PS Belmayne who receive First Eucharist today at the 12.30pm Family Mass. This is the final First Communion Mass for our parish this year.

PS. Next Sunday is the Feast of Corpus Christi, the Body and Blood of Christ. We will have our Parish Corpus Christi Procession around the grounds of the church after the 12.30pm Family Mass. The procession will conclude with Benediction. It would be wonderful to have as many as possible of our First Communicants leading the procession on the day.
